Four easy steps to e-learning

Step 1. Find a Course

Whether you know what course you want or simply would like to browse; it's easy! Here are some ways you can quickly find the information you need:

STEP 2: Buy the course

When you've found the course you are looking for, you can make a secure payment online with most popular credit/debit cards or via Paypal.

Simply click on the "buy it now" icon and have your card details at the ready.

You will now see a form which asks you for your personal and card details. All our payments are dealt with by Worldpay; an important part of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group, one of the biggest banking groups in the world, so you can be sure that your payment will be safe and secure. Here at Virtual College we never even get to see your credit card details!

When you have completed the form simply click proceed to checkout. Once your payment is accepted, you will be automatically setup as a learner in our system and will immediately receive an email with your unique username, password and step by step instruction on how to access your learning.

If you wish to purchase multiples of courses or would like to be invoiced, you can e-mail us on or call our support team on 01943-605976

STEP 3: Take the course

In the email we send you confirming your purchase has gone through, you will be given a link to click on, that will launch the login screen. Simply type in the username and password we send you in the email, click the submit button and you will see your individual learner record.

All you need to do is click on the training button to launch your training course and begin learning. A few things you might want to note as you are going through are:

STEP 4: Your Certificate

For most courses you will be able to print your own certificate at the end of the test. But this does vary. For example, our Food Safety & Hygiene (Level 2) courses include the option of a posted certificate, if you have chosen this option the certificate is printed here at Virtual College and posted out within two working days. For other courses, there is no certificate

Which of the above applies should be clearly indicated on the page showing the course details.
